Note to TripAdvisor: La Zingara is listed twice for top rated restaurants for Bethel. What is the distinction between them? We went to their rooftop restaurant, Ecco. Wood fired oven creates some great food and pizza. It is not pizzeria trying to be a casual, classy restaurant, but it is not a restaurant trying to be a pizzeria. They managed... More

Fun menu and unique items. Have dined here for dinner and brunch several times. Food is always consistent. A great place to eat, however a little pricey.

Great evening with friends at the rooftop restaurant. We had a selection of small dishes, all were great (except perhaps the cold quinoa with the salmon!). Overall a good experience, friendly service and nice location.

We go here every couple of months for a special treat. Really nice food, excellent atmosphere and service. They are also often in various promotions, like Bethel Restaurant week, and restaurant.com. Love it, have never been disappointed there. They also have a new rooftop area, which I think it open air in warm weather. Have not yet tried that.

The high rating that this restaurant gets on Trip Advisor and the crowds it enjoys is more reflective of the lack of local competition and excellent food in the surrounding area rather than its culinary excellence. We went last night with another couple, ... All four of us "foodies". Not one of us raved over our meals. I had the... More

You'd have to look pretty hard to find a better restaurant in the greater Danbury area. They have a great menu that is updated seasonally, the ingredients are fresh and sourced locally as much as possible and the service is friendly, efficient and accommodating. There's also a rooftop offshoot called Ecco which has a open-roofed bar and lighter fare. We've... More

Service is wonderful in a trendy location. Food is always delicious and their recommendations for wine are always very good. They have some tried and true dishes and often quite a number or creative combinations that we really enjoy! It can be a little loud in there, but it doesn't bother us at all!

La Zingara is one of my favorite restaurants and it's so close to home, I feel so lucky. The menu is changed seasonal, the food is always fresh and great quality, and the specials are amazing. I don't know how the chef does it, but he makes incredible meals using combinations I'd never consider in my kitchen, and they are... More

Traditional brunches abound, but a unique brunch with live music, local food and great service makes Sunday special. Priced right and with relatively bottomless bloody marys and mimosas you can't go wrong. A can't miss brunch! Get there early and be prepared for a short wait.
